Welcome to our Create with Connie and Mary Inspiration Monday challenges. This week’s inspiration challenge is a gorgeous blue flower bouquet!
I pulled out a favorite set from the Annual Catalog because the blossoms in the inspiration photo reminded me of this Translucent Florals set! I added the new SAB Embossing Folder to go with it!
- The base is 4-1/4 x 11 Thick Basic White cardstock, scored at 5-1/2 and folded.
- The 4 x 5-1/4 layer of Boho Blue cardstock was embossed with the Softly Sophisticated Embossing Folder and added to the front.
- The half flower from Translucent Florals was inked five times on with with Balmy Blue Ink, then sponged the centers with Boho Blue Ink and stamped on Basic White. They were cut with the Translucent Florals Dies and added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- The leaves were stamped with Soft Sea Foam Ink on Basic White and colored with Light Soft Sea Foam Stapin’ Blends for a little more depth. They were cut in half and added at the top and bottom of the floral bunch.
- The greeting from Translucent Florals was stamped with Boho Blue on 2/3 x 2 Basic White cardstock and the ends cut at an angle. It was added to the front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
- Iridescent Rhinestones were added to the centers of the flowers for a little bling.
I love how this cascades down the front! OK…check out what Mary did with the Inspiration Monday Challenge over on Create with Connie and Mary!
